Finishing Weekend

I finished two pairs of socks this weekend. One of which had been languishing from June.

Here they are.
Laeticia from TwistCollective

And Ampersand from Kirsten Kapur of Through the Loops

I am going to try to get two more socks completed before October. I am about half way through one that I started last night. So, it might be doable.

The end of Summer

Today is the 21st of September and the last day of summer. To say goodbye to summer I thought I would share some pictures.

A beautiful summer day.

Lovelies from my garden.

And here are my latest knitting accomplishments.
Half of my Ampersands for my daughter

And the Lock Ness Monster

Half of my Test knit for LauraJ called Grass Ripples. The yarn is Hazel knits Artisan in Spice.

I have been working on a few stealth projects. I will be able to tell you about in November and January.

Busy, Busy, Busy

I thought thinks would calm down after school started. Clearly, that is not the case. There are meet the teacher nights and club meetings along with all of the kids regular activities.

Plus, for most of August I was working on a stealth project. I am almost finished with that. I did have a little time to work on some knitting.

I finished the Swedish Fish socks for my son.

As well as a small shawl, Meliae by Melissa Goodale. It is made out of one skein of Hazel Knits Artisan sock yarn in Leaf.

I have started a test knit for LaruaJ on Ravelry. It is a truly beautiful pattern. I will probably do another shawl or two for Christmas knitting. And maybe some Cowls, fingerless glove etc.
I better get busy.
